Engraving on Stone

Utilizing equipment from my business, ENGRAVESTONE, I have rendered several drawings on various stone materials. The evolution from the original drawing to finished engraving is where my interest lies. It is a challenge to make a composition originally drawn on paper to work on a stone surface. Even though they are essentially the same image, they are two entirely different pieces of art.
